 Mid Term and Parent Teacher Conferences

Mid-Term is this Friday, February 10th. P/T Conferences will be held next week on Thursday, February 16th, from 3:30 – 8:00pm. Our P/T Conference is a great time to visit with teachers and discuss how your student(s) is doing in class.  Teachers will be in the cafeteria, but before you head in, please stop at the counseling table to pick up a copy of your student's midterm grade report.  The counseling table will be set up at the main entrance of the school, outside of the main office.

 All Students Invited to Audition for Choir

Come audition for choir for 2017-2018 school year. There are several choirs to audition for. Not all choirs will require an audition but the two advanced groups do. Auditions will be held Today, Monday Feb. 6th, Wednesday Feb. 8th, and Friday Feb. 10th after school. Students wanting to audition should come prepared to sing their favorite song. It won't be high stress and will only be 5 minutes tops. Sign-up sheets are on Mr. Kavanaugh's window. If students don't want to audition there are still plenty of spots in the non-audition choir, just sign up during regular registration. Come to sing!!

 Be a Part of Something Fun - Join Indoor Soccer Intramurals

Intramural sports are for ALL students; 7th, 8th and 9th grade, both girls and boys and there is never a cost to participate. INDOOR SOCCER is our next intramural and it begins tomorrow, Feb. 7th and will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays right after school from 2:45pm - 3:45pm unless otherwise specified.  To join a team and be part of intramurals talk with Mrs. Rogers or Mr. Bartholomew or just show up to the activity and tell the teacher you want to join in. Please come out and participate in this fun opportunity!

The details for the bus will be announced tomorrow. Good luck Lobos!!
